Pyramid and Patricia Lakes, Jasper

4.5
#3 of 16 in Nature in Jasper National Park
Surrounded by snowcapped mountains, Pyramid and Patricia Lakes feature sparkling blue water and quiet beaches, picnic spots and hiking trails, as well as plenty of outdoor sports. Situated within a national park, the area around the lakes supports diverse wildlife, including elk, bighorn sheep, and mountain goats. Rent a canoe or a rowboat and paddle around a small lake island, and learn about the area's important role during World War II, when it served as the building site of an unsinkable warship--which eventually sunk when the project was abandoned.

Where to stay in Jasper National Park

Scores of hotels, lodges, and guesthouses line the western edge of Jasper's main thoroughfare, Connaught Drive, although you might struggle to find more budget-friendly options. If you're willing to pay a higher price, you can immerse yourself in nature without sacrificing luxury by staying in a resort or mountain lodge within the national park itself. Reserve your accommodations advance, as lodgings can be hard to come by at the height of the season.
